The vision of the Rogers Farm Public Art Project is to feature a site-specific public art feature that can help define the neighborhood yet harken back to the area’s history. The placement of the design feature at the site(s) will highlight and showcase the long view looking west toward the mountain range and east towards the new Downtown Superior and roundabout.
